Sometimes my lovebird, Peaches, will tuck her head back and appear to be asleep, but she's not. She's got her eyes open and occasionally chirps at the birds she hears outside or at me when I walk by. Is this simply a relaxed position for her?

My parrots have various levels of sleep. Eyes can be open, half shut, shut, shut with occasional opening to check for danger. Depends on the time of day, hw muh the other birds are moving around etc. And please stop talking of sleep, I'm falling asleep myself now!

All of three of my birds do this, I always assumed it was "resting". They sometimes close their eyes but seem quite aware of everything going on, as they too will respond to us, noise outside, each other, and such. A lot of times the Macaw will do this in the early evening, especially on my day off, as he gets lot's of action then. Often he will act like this for a while, then it's like he has a sudden burst of energy. Guess he re charged, so now it's time to play.

When you're having a really bad day and it seems like people are trying to piss you off, remember it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 4 to extend your middle finger.

Ever heard of "word wrap," Hucker? You're the only poster who's text goes all the way across the page. And you were the one awhile back who was chastising other posters for not knowing how to post properly with their news readers..

I AM posting properly. Word wrap was used in the early 80s when people had 80 column screens. Nowadays things have moved on. What should happen is your newsreader wraps the text temporarily to your screen width (all newsreaders can be set to do this).

It is OK to let your mind go blank, but please turn off the sound.

I should have titled the post "Eyes Wide Shut" Emotion: smile ah, but then someone would sue me for plagerism.
Yes, she's resting, which I also call relaxing Emotion: smile She's a funny, loving little bird and she lets me know if I am neglecting her for sure! She yells for me and it sounds like she's shouting her name - Peaches! (I swear she's trying to talk, even though they aren't known for it) .
